I just want to know if this sentence is right: ごぜんにじはんです (It's half past two AM).. I think it is, but i need confirmation.

And how do you say, for instance, it's 4 o'clock and 25 mins?

Thank you :)

Okay thank you my friend.. But about ふん, google is translating it as "poop"!!! And "minute" is translated to Japanese as "Bun".. I got lost here!

Aha.. I get it.. And i already don't trust Google translate but it's the only resource i have.. If you could give me the title of some good En-Ja dictionary it'll be very appreciated.

And thanks for the Wiki link :)

Those are pretty good and can be accessed from mobile. However, for my tablet I personally use Jsho (yes, without the i) (I just tested them the other day, and I found like 4 or 5 dictionaries that look gorgeous and work marvelously too, like gSho, "Japanese" and the Weblio one), as it also has a pairing Cdian by the same person. I have a thing for multiple things under the same person with the same styling.

On the desktop I always trust only Denshi Jisho. It uses EDICT like Jsho and a bunch of other dictionaries.

They also provide a bookmarklet but it kinda has some spelling errors and stuff. I have OCD about that. So here's my own bookmarklet that I just kinda...oh great I can't paste it here without it screwing up. Never mind.

*EDIT* If you want it, you can PM me your email and I'll send you it.

It is fine, haha. They provide results both in Kanji and solely Kana to the right of it. There is also a Romaji option, as I remember. Most dictionaries are like this.
